6:00 am
just mean when they lose. the thing is because baltimore, you know, the baltimore- washington dynamic, it's that dynamic so they don't -- they have no compassion for anybody from baltimore. >> you're still getting worked up and you're in the super bowl. >> i know, because i've been with him for 15 years so i've put up with this. and then when, you know, when it's my turn, i don't get any love, none. >> thanks for joining us. one suggestion on how to deal with this cope wise? >> actually, watching you guys, given that you can put up with this, you're good for another 15 years. >> thanks so much for joining us. it's so much fun to talk to you guys. thank you for coming in. this was a lot of fun. we'll toss it over to you. >> thank you so much, mike. of course it is 6:00 a.m. on this friday morning. we're so happy you're joining us. i'm jessica doyle in for andrea roane. we have monika samtani watching your traffic. good morning, my dear. and some flurries out there. >> more than flurries.
6:01 am
>> both issues, both traffic and weather. howard bernstein has that. >> we have this picture from the germantown marc station, folks waiting for the train. let's go to the weather graphics and you can see what's going on. they want to be on the train, not waiting for it there. roads are covered and slick. northern areas especially rough. seeing a lot of this firsthand. so watch out up in frederick county. parts of upper montgomery county and loudoun county and charles town, west virginia. win chester, virgin as well. watching all of these areas with slick spots this morning. our day planner today, we're looking at temperatures starting out in the upper 20s and low 30s. breezy, still a little snow around at 8:00. after that, things are going to clear out quickly. it will be a windy day with high temperatures not moving much. in fact, steadily falling into the upper 20s by 8:00 with winds gusting at times to 30 miles an hour. winter weather advisories go till 10:00 a.m. probably going to be over before that but the damage will be done with a quick half-inch
6:02 am
to inch in many areas as this system is scooting east very quickly. it's produced some areas near an ink of snow in the mountain -- inch of snow in the mountains of west virginia coming at us right now. you can see the bands of more moderate snow north and west. another one south and east. in bowie, not yet. be patient. watch out for the slick spots. let's check in with monika samtani at 6:01. she has timesaver traffic. slick spots. the ong thing we have -- the only thing we have going for us is on fridays, we call it friday morning light because traffic is lighter later in the morning. still, slick spots as howard has been telling us, especially to the north and west of town so please keep your speed limits down this morning. give yourself a little extra time. you may just need it. right now the beltway looks okay. tiny bit of slow traffic forming on the outer loop into silver spring. let's take a live look outside and show what you it looks like here in clarksburg. we've been using this as an example of the snow falling sticking on the side of the middle of the road. so be aware of that. if you're ranking to head over
6:03 am
into -- if you're planning to head over into virginia, this time on the south side of town coming into virginia from maryland, you're going to be okay. crossing the wilson bridge, northbound 210, an accident right before the beltway. that one blocks the right lane. back to you. >> thanks, monika. a lot of anger and frustration for commuters on the green line wednesday night. this morning we're learning more about why thousands of metro riders evacuated themselves when their train became stranded. >> now an apology from metro's general manager. delia goncalves is live at navy yard with more on what went wrong and how they're hoping to move forward from this. good morning, delia. >> reporter: good morning. it was a failure to communicate simply. that's what it boils down to. a problem that could have been fixed fairly quickly took two hours to address and sent lots of people out here flooding the streets outside of navy yard station. a lot of them actually walked home that night. passengers tweeted out pictures of wednesday night's event. it happened around 5:00 in the
6:04 am
evening. two green line trains got stuck in opportunity hims between navy yard and anacostia stations. metro says the problem started with a fire in an insulator that keeps power in the third track from energizing the other two. an employee cut off the power to address the problem but that employee never told anyone else. >> it was hot and people were passing out. someone opened the emergency exit. we ran to the nearest emergency excite. >> that kind of communication, we would have recovered faster. we'll look at the precise events. >> reporter: the investigation is ongoing. i have a couple of questions sent out to the spokesperson with metro to find out what the results of that investigation will be. one, will there be any disciplinary action against the employee who didn't follow
6:05 am
protocol? a second question i asked him, training. are we going to train these folks to actually follow the protocol in an emergency situation? metro says this could have been a dangerous situation. we had pregnant people, folks with asthma attacks, folks who suffered panic attacks stuck in the trains for two hours. it all ended without any major catastrophe but it could have been a really bad situation. so hopefully i can get those answers for you in our next live report at 6:30. back to you. >> and make sure the communication system actually works in all the trains because that needs to be kept up to snuff, too. a ban or limit on the sale of ski masks in the district? d.c.'s neighborhood advisory commissioners at least want to talk about after several robberies by gunmen wearing face masks at the time making accident indication for vehicle ims -- identification for
6:06 am
victims more difficult. two more days until the super bowl. the 49ers practiced inside yesterday for the first time in the big easy. the baltimore ravens were briefly ose by. this was a day after preparations were moved inside. there were high winds. that was the main concern. today the harbaugh brothers will have a joins news conference and our wusa9 team in new orleans. well have it all for you coming up later today. ♪ for the land of the free ♪ and the home of thbrave
6:07 am
>> any questions? >> we never really had a doubt that she could physically sing but she gave reporters a preview of her, quote, live performance coming up this sunday during the half time show in the super bowl. she admitted that she did indeed lip simpg her inauguration performance. she was scheduled to sing along with a prerecorded track. she was concerned about the weather and didn't have time to rehearse with the orchestra. for this sunday's big game, she said she's nervous but she will indeed be performing live. it is 6:07. i am following your money this morning. when it comes to super bowl ads, it seems money is no object. companies shell out millions to be seen for 30 seconds in the big game. i'm joined by anthony poppis.
6:08 am
we'll take a look at one of this year's super bowl commercials. it's from audi and it's stirring some controversy. >> some people don't like the black eye. they think it's a little violent for a super bowl ald but that's not the -- ad but that's not the only potential controversy. there's another one where the white guy speaks with a jamaican accent. >> that's -- i think it's not so much a controversy. it's a positive message ad. i think -- it's been in the news for the last several days. it's played very well in the
6:09 am
media. i'm not sure it's much of a controversy as much as a well placed ad. >> we're taking a look at it here right now on your screen. do you think it's kind of a manufactured controversy stirred up by the ad business to get a little more attention before the super bowl? >> vw has had a good history in the super bowl ads. this ad is a positive message. it also sort of -- from the people created deutch in new york, they were notorious for really good spots. it's a coincidence it's also getting a lot of good play. >> we're seeing a lot of commercials out early this year. that's a big change from the past. what do you think that's about? is it getting an early bite of the apple or potentially maybe blowing some of the buzz that can happen? >> i think they're trying to stretch their investment. when you spend $3.8 million on a tv spot, if you can get more
6:10 am
than 30 seconds during the game with a lot of noise and competition, spread it over a week or two, it really creates a lot of content and it has it out in the media, on tv, the internet. i think it's a good idea and people enjoy it. they get to watch it beforehand. >> you work in the ad business. you know how ads work. $3.8 million for 30 seconds. they're actually paying more than last year. we saw some dips in recent years because the advertisers were saying we're not sure it's worth the money but apparently it is? >> it absolutely is. just to give you an example, if you only actually put your ad on the spot for the super bowl, only that one time, you only get maybe 1.3 million viewers. if you extend it over a longer period of time, you can get up to 9 million, 10 million viewers. the $3.8 million to spend for 9 million viewers, that is a
6:11 am
great investment. with 70 million people watching as well in the super bowl, it's a great investment over time. >> this year social media has been a big deal. people have been getting an early chance to decide how commercials end and there's some talk about that. that's got to play into the strategy as well. >> what you're seeing, them using the content, especially if you spend $3.8 million, you want to extend it as far as you can. social media allows them to do that. it's a shareable piece of content. the other thing is online and using social media, the spots are going beyond 30 seconds. they're a minute, minute and a half. those are engaging stories that people want to read about and see. social media is the best way to get it out there. >>it's really brilliant. thanks so much for coming in and talking about it. >> thank you for having me. taking a stand against heart disease in women. today people are going red and bringing attention to the number one killer in women. we'll be right back. we spend a lot of time on the feed
6:12 am
because a chicken is what it eats. [ jim ] this seal verifies we feed my fresh all-natural chickens an all-vegetarian diet including corn, soybeans, and marigolds. no animal by-products. no meat and bone meal. when you put my chicken on the table, you know where it came from.
6:13 am
6:14 am
that i put on my children's plate. that's why we use all-white meat, breading that is whole grain with omega-3 and no preservatives. it is my goal to make the highest quality, best-tasting nugget on the market. i want consumers to go, "dang, that's a good nugget."
6:15 am
winter weather advisory in effect for the d.c. metro till 10:00 a.m. well very a little snow early this morning. maybe even up to an inch in a couple of spots. just a coating for most. it could snarl the morning commute a little bit. we'll turn partly sunny this afternoon. breezy, too. highs upper 20s to mid-30s. weekend forecast coming up in just a few minutes. it's 6:15. did you know that heart disease is the number one killer in women? so many people think it's something else entirely. going red for women is today. joining me now is dr. daisy lazarus from med star health institute. are people starting to get the message? >> go red for women over the past ten years has saved 627,000 women's lives. so it's a huge impact. yet, if you poll women today,
6:16 am
only 50% know that heart disease is the number one killer. the rest think it's cancer, breast cancer particularly, but heart disease kills more than all cancers combined. >> one of the things we were talking about, maybe the more aggravating things about this -- thing about this, it's preventible. >> absolutely preventible. more than 67% is related to simple behaviors. quitting smoking, doing a bit of exercise every day, losing some weight, cutting down on the salt in your diet, transfat. it's a very simple measures that every woman can employ every single day of her life. >> is heart disease difficult to diagnosis because women go to the doctor -- many women go to the doctor regularly. is it missed in regular exams? is that why so many-- >> i think a big part of it is symptoms tend to be quite different in women. both men and women can get chest pains but women can get a lot of other symptoms, like
6:17 am
just being tired, shortness of breath, dizziness, some abdominal discomfort. these are not symptoms we classally associate with chest pains that a man may experience. so symptoms do tend to be different but the message for all women is that you are at risk. heart disease is your number one killer. so get with the program. get advice, prevention and get checked out by your doctor. >> one last question. if the symptoms are different between men and women, the easiest way to detect it in a woman is what? blood tests? another test? what is the test? >> there are different kinds of tests, but if you believe you're at risk, first of all i think the message is change -- prevention is the message. change your cardiac risk factors but consult your internist. there are many different kinds of testing that you can do, including a stress test which may not be specific for women.
6:18 am
check your arteries for plaque. all these tests can tell us. >> it is the number one killer. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. want to share a picture taken just before 6:00 from the germantown marc station. you can see the big flakes that are coming down. a little buildup on the sidewalk surfaces and other areas are seeing a little buildup on the roads. a brief little snow squall coming through with this upper air disturbance. low clouds. light snow in town. by 8:00 a lot of this will be pushing east of d.c. a cold afternoon. highs in town low 30s. north and west we may stay in the upper 20s as this upper air disturbance racing quickly across the region. the brighter white, these are those bands where at times visibility down a half mile. you can pick up a quick quarter to half an inch in 20, 30
6:19 am
minutes. we're seeing -- once you get past i-81, even the back edge racing quickly east with these bands across the region from fairfax across parts of montgomery county, even off to our south and east. we have another band there, a fast moving system. visibilities drop like in quantico to three-quarters. leesburg three-quarters, just a sign of the quick intense little burst we'll see but this will be out of here in a few hours. behind it temps drop off. teens in pittsburgh. 10 in columbus. we're still in the 20s and 30s this morning. locally below freezing in many areas. even at 33 with the intensity, we're going to stick to the road a little bit. 31 reston. 28 germantown to 33 in waldorf. outside the clouds out there. a little bit of light snow at national, 34. but feels like 27. winds starting to turn from south to west. they'll be picking up. futurecast shows the system quickly moving east. here we are by 9:00. by lunch time it's just about out to sea. so a little snow early. a little excitement for your morning. that's why we have the yellow
6:20 am
alert out but only for the next few hours. partly sunny, windy this afternoon. we'll be lucky to get to 34. tonight 22, partly cloudy. 14 outside the beltway. 36 tomorrow with snow showers tomorrow night. again a coating to possibly an inch. super bowl sunday looks okay with a passing flurry, 41. we'll be around 40 on monday. let's go over to monika samtani. she's got some traffic cameras showing where the snow band is. we do. if you take a look at the camera i'm about to show new rockville, it's really coming down. it was up in clarksburg and now we're going to take a look at our mdot camera if we could, lauren, at montrose road and 270. if you look closely, you can see it coming down against the light here. that's also going to affect your visibility, keep the distance from the car in front of you. people are going slower. you don't have the volume but you still want to keep your speed limits down especially coming in from frederick. we got word from frederick county up there at the intersection of i-70 and 270
6:21 am
that the snow is causing some problems there as well sticking to the roads up north. this time over to the other side of town coming in from the west again, a band of snow as howard has been saying. let's take a live look outside one more time. this time on the dulles toll road at route 28. again snow sticking to the side of the road here. back to you guys. we'll be back in a few

6:25 am
to half-inch. a slick start. we turn partly sunny later this morning. windy this afternoon with high temperatures in the lower 30s. michael? >> thank you, howard. 6:25. we're following breaking news this morning. we're getting reports that three time former new york city mayor ed cox has died of congestive heart failure. >> he was 88 years old. he was known and loved in new york city from 1978 to 1989. he was mayor and dealt with a severe financial problems of new york city. >> he would ask, how am i doing? he was received very warmly and hence his three terms as new york city mayor. ed koch has passed away. i'm sure condolences will be coming out soon. today is hillary clinton's last day as secretary of state. she will have a meeting at the white house and say goodbye to her staff at the state department before she packs up and leaves. john kerry will be sworn in as the new secretary of state this afternoon in a private ceremony at the state department.

6:31 am
here in washington as we're seeing areas just west now of sterling. over toward leesburg and frederick starting to get out of the snow. some of it is on the moderate side. 27 in gaithersburg. still snowing there. frederick 28. 34 officially at national and 32 in annapolis with highs again not much higher than where we are now. it is really pretty out here if it doesn't cause too many problems on the roads. with more on that, we go inside to monika samtani. it really is a pretty snow. i've been looking at all the cameras. the only thing is it's causing fender benders around the area. no major accidents but that just tells you you need to keep your distance in front of you because of all the slipping and sliding that's going on right now. inside the beltway, you want to remember bridges freeze first. right now we're doing okay. roosevelt memorial, 14th street bridge and 295 to the 11th street bridge. if you're planning to head here on 270 southbound, the snow and the poor visibility here causing the slow stuff through rockville and up in germantown as well. let's go to another camera

6:34 am
the failure to communicate forced hundreds of passengers out here into the cold streets outside of the navy yard station. take a look at these pictures that some frustrated passengers tweeted out of that wednesday night horrendous commute. it was during the height of rush hour. two green line trains got stuck in a tunnel between navy yard and anacostia stations for two whole hours. passengers simply panicked. they pushed open the doors, walked on to the tracks down that tunnel to get to an emergency exit. metro's g.m. who is now apologizing for the whole incident says passengers should never walk on train tracks unless they are in immediate danger. take a listen. >> i myself have been a commuter for many years. i have been on a train that sat in the dark in a tunnel. i understand that feeling but you're generally much better off unless there's immediate danger to stay on the train and wait. >> reporter: i said metro is launching an veg to find out
6:35 am
exactly -- an investigation to find out exactly went wrong, why protocol was not followed. i have a couple of questions myself. what happened after the investigation? will that employee face any disciplinary action? will there be additional training and what about the whole communication issue with folks literally be in the dark on those trains for two hours not knowing what was going on? i have tweeted an e-mail to the spokesperson for metro about half an hour ago. haven't heard back yet but i'll stay on top of it. i'll update my twitter page and facebook as soon as i get any information. twitter at 9news deal ya. back to you-- >> delia. back to you. >> thanks, delia. we want to update our breaking news. three-time former city mayor ed koch exased away this morning from -- passed away this morning from congestive heart failure. he was 88 years old. >> a lot of us grew up with ed koch. the washington area and new york tied back and forth. ed koch dealt with the problems
6:36 am
of the financial crisis in new york. we saw skyrocketing homelessness, racial tensions growing. still a very beloved mayor from new york city. >> he would walk around saying how am i doing? he would always want the feedback. the condolences will be pouring in this morning for ed koch. he passed away this morning in a new york hospital, 88 years old from congestive heart failure. switching gears. we've got some bargains coming up. hundreds of couture wedding gowns going on sale this weekend, some up to 85% off. all of it for a worthy cause. we're going to take a look at some of them coming up. eat good fats.
